Baffle question

How close should the baffle be to the soffits? I know it needs to get pushed into that gable cavity, but is there a rule for how far in it should go?

No rule that I know of... but you usually want it to extend several inches beyond the top plate since you usually will double over some fiberglass insulation and stuff it snugly between the baffle and the top plate.
